Rescued dog lost her babies, but took care of three kittens who needed a mother to thrive.
Perrita rescatada adopta tres gatitos
A dog they called «Georgia» was found living at a gas station near the U.S.-Mexico border in Rocky Point. The Phoenix-based Sunshine Dog Rescue team found her and took her to their facility.
They learned that Georgia was pregnant, but sadly none of the puppies survived. All were born prematurely, abc Arizona reports.
Anita Osa, founder of Sunshine Dog Rescue, said Georgia was heartbroken and sad after losing all of her babies.
Rescued dog adopts three kittens
«I’ve never had a mom lose an entire litter before. The best way I could describe it was that she was frantic. I was so sad, I was looking for those babies. She broke the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies.»
Georgia is looking for babies
Hoping that Georgia would begin her healing process both physically and emotionally, Anita made a call for help on social media, looking for any animal that needed a nursing mother.
That’s how they found a trio of newborn kittens that had been orphaned, and urgently needed a mother to help them thrive.
Anita initially wondered if a dog would accept kittens, but was surprised to see the instant bond Georgia formed with her three adopted kittens.
Georgia is even allowing its kittens to feed, although their milk production is low.
«She breastfeeds them. She cleans them and everything, but the bond is strong. It’s really something worth seeing, she protects those kittens as if they were her babies.»
Georgia is happy that these three felines came into her life, after all the pain caused by the loss of her cubs.
